Essien is quoted by Milan’s official website as saying he cannot wait to play for the side.
An earlier report by the Ghana News Agency had claimed he had failed the first of a series of medicals but the player rejoined the claim via Twitter, saying “Haters will broadcast your failure but whisper your success.Medicals done,looking forward to start my new life with AC Milan.”
Soon after he arrived at the Malpensa Airport, Essien did not hide his joy at joining Milan, saying ‘I’m happy to be here. I joined Milan because of Seedorf. I spoke with him two days ago. Seedorf is a great man and I hope that he will also become a great manager. l will do my best for AC Milan.’
